At Your Fingertips: Boxes


Published 1970


Reveals the supermarket as a source for every imaginable box, carton and container. Explains that these same receptacles, once they find their way to the home, provide a group of children with material for construction of art objects, playthings, houses and tunnels. A clever, beautiful film, showing children building everything from trains to colored houses, under the direction of Ernest Ziegfield, Ed. D.


Producer Peter Erik and Mary Anna Winkler
Sponsor Scott Edmonson

Memories for those who played like this, and ideas for non-electronic fun for those who didn't.

Now what? The kids and grandkids won't drop by until Thanksgiving, and space is starting to get really tight. Great idea though, since the kids said last year they would stop EVER coming by if I didn't stop giving the grandkids toy drumsets and other toy musical instruments for Christmas and birthdays; so now they're getting boxes. Of course I've already e-mailed all the grandkids the MPEG of this wonderfully educational film and told them to start saving boxes themselves and to plan projects based on many more boxes, as they are here waiting for them. They were excited!

Any suggestions what to do with blister pacs?

Thank you, uploader, for the laughs and for the memories!
10/10
